    She is heading South with a Class 37 today. So it could be either that or the Class 47 on the rear tomorrow.

    How do we know that there will be a diesel? If one is planned I just hope that it unfortunately fails!

    Can anyone confirm FS will be departing Sailsbury on the afternoon tea trip at 14.00. Lots of people from my work place are going out to see FS in Southampton.

    If it's a Deltic he might survive, a 37 however would soon see off all but the really hardened crank.

    They might as well have published the times as well.....................

    Also sounds like crowd control will be in place at the major stations.

    Can also see roads along the route becoming clogged to boot - though the weather forecast doesn't look too clever.

    So can anyone PM me the times at Salisbury then please, as I'll be away, but I stand to lose serious street-cred from one of my wife's friends who wants to take her children to see FS, and I've suggested 2pm...

    Yes thank you, I meant Salisbury! Too many cathedrals around for my brain to cope.
